Meet Nicolas

Nicolas is a passionate, self taught home chef who started cooking when he was very young. He lives in a small, simple and cozy apartment with good views of the boulevard Cerviño from his balcony. Just the perfect place to host friends and family! The location is great, as Palermo Town is near the most important avenue in Buenos Aires, Libertador. Nicolas describes himself as a food lover and would like to share with travelers his immense love for Argentinean food and culture. He also has some great recommendations for local restaurants and must visit places in his city!

What to expect

Please note menu might vary. If there are particular dishes you are interested in trying, please include your request in the booking form.

In-home meal: (1-4 guests) Nicolas will welcome you with a warm smile for a fun Argentinean asado on the patio! The patio has a great view overlooking Avenida Cerviño and a small asado grill built into the wall. He will introduce you to Argentinean food and culture and later share a home cooked meal that may include dishes such as empanadas, grilled meat, homemade sauces, salad and rice pudding.

Cooking experience: (1-4 guests) In your one hour cooking class with Nicolas, you will learn to make a potato cake, which is a classic Argentinean dish found in homes and bakeries. Every family has their own adaptation of this dish and Nicolas will show you his version. He will also give you a step-by-step guide to prepare an authentic Argentine asado (barbecue) - grilling different meat with a variety of sauces.

Notes: Please note, in order to make an excellent asado it needs to be slow cooked and Nicolas needs a minimum of 1 hour to grill it.

Traveler reviews

I loved the asado on the patio, and the view from Nicolas' apartment is amazing. It's one of my favorite memories from my time in Buenos Aires! Nicolas is an easy-going, friendly cook, and his apartment is the perfect date night location. Nicolas was warm and welcoming from beginning to end, and that feeling of simple goodness carries into the food. It would be easy to spend a long time chatting on the patio, except that he has so many recommendations of what to do next in the area (ask about PIBÄ).

FAQ

    You can cancel your experience 48 hours or more before your experience date and receive a full refund. To request a cancellation once you have made a booking simply log in and click the "Request Cancellation" link from the bottom of your booking. Your refund will be processed immediately (note it can take up to 10 business days for this refund to post to your credit card statement). Please note that for cancellations within 48 hours of your experience we unfortunately cannot offer a refund; this is because our hosts typically purchase food and begin their preparations up to 48 hours before the experience.

    Most of our hosts are able to accommodate dietary restrictions and allergies, including vegetarian and gluten free options. For vegetarian travelers, we have an icon on each host profile to indicate whether that host can also offer a fully vegetarian menu. There is a section in the booking form to note any allergies or dietary restrictions which will be sent directly to your host.

    If you have a question about an experience, create a reservation and include your note in the field "Write a note to your host". Once you request a booking you can continue to message your host directly to ask any specific questions. You can always cancel your booking and receive a full refund as long as you cancel 48 hours in advance.

    Your card will not be charged until your host accepts your booking. Typically hosts respond to bookings within 72 hours. In the event your host is unavailable on your selected date and your host rejects your booking your credit card will not be charged.

    Your host's detailed contact information, including their phone number, address, and direction notes, will all be provided immediately upon successful confirmation of your experience (after your hosts accepts your booking and your credit card is successfully processed). This information will be emailed to you to the email address you used to sign up, and will also be visible on your Traveling Spoon profile.

    All prices are noted per person prices unless otherwise specified. Transportation is typically charged on a per car basis, but otherwise all prices are per person. Children aged 5-11 are 50% off, and infants aged 0-4 are free.

    Some hosts offer alcohol as an optional add-on for travelers who are of legal drinking age. Pricing for alcohol is visible on the host profile page and includes one to two glasses of wine, beer or local alcohol.

    Some hosts offer transportation as an optional add-on for travelers. Typically this is round trip transportation with pick up and drop off at your hotel. Pricing is quoted per car. Specific instructions for transportation will be provided in your confirmation details when your booking is confirmed.

    Many of our hosts accommodate solo travelers. You can see if a host accepts solo travelers by looking at the traveler range found next to the experience descriptions on the host profile (indicated by the numbers in parentheses next to "In-home meal", "Cooking experience" and "Market visit").

    Your safety and security are our top priority. To ensure this, Traveling Spoon personally vets 100% of all hosts, including an in-person host visit, to ensure each host and experience meets our strict quality requirements.

    Hosts typically respond to booking inquiries within 72 hours. If for some reason you have not heard from your host or if you have any questions you can always contact us at reservations@travelingspoon.com.
